San Roque University Hospitals in Maspalomas is located in the municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana, in the south of the island of Gran Canaria, one of the main tourist areas of the Canary Islands. It was created in 2006 after HSR was awarded the public tender called by the San Bartolomé de Tirajana Town Council for its construction and operation under an administrative concession.
The Hospital was created with the aim of meeting the needs of the population of the southern area of Gran Canaria, which until then had to travel to the capital to receive specialised healthcare, as well as the growing demand for holiday and health tourism. It has thus become a health centre of reference in the south of Gran Canaria and is on a par with the most highly specialised and technologically advanced hospitals in Europe.
Likewise, the award of the public tender by the Regional Ministry of Health of the Canary Islands Government for the provision of specialised health care to patients in the health areas of the south of the island makes it the public reference hospital, both for the Spanish population and for the numerous foreign residents and visitors.
It is accredited by the Regional Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands as a General Hospital and is approved for half-stay and inpatient surgical procedures. The centre currently has 147 beds, 5 operating theatres, 17 emergency boxes and 8 ICU boxes. The total built surface area of Hospitales San Roque in Maspalomas is 24,000 m2.
